The Best Homemade Keto Pecan Pie
Yes, really. We’ve made the classic pecan pie KETO-FRIENDLY!
A low-carb pecan pie without all the sugar and carbs?! Go ahead and have a slice of heaven with this keto pecan pie. I served this up and no one believed it was Keto. It’s THAT good.
During the holiday season, I love serving pecan pie. It’s rich and delicious, and usually filled with an endless amount of sugar. Well, now I can still add the pecan pie to the dessert table without any guilt. This keto pecan pie comes in at only 4 net carbs per serving.
From the candied pecans to the buttery flaky crust, it’s literally heaven in a pie pan.
- A lot of pecan pie recipes pour the pecans into the pie crust first, and then pour the caramel sauce over. I instead opted to boiled the pecans in the butter sauce first to make sure the pecans got well combined with all of that sweet goodness.
- Do NOT fork your pie crust as this pie has a filling that you won’t want to seep through.
- If you’re like me and love baking pies, go ahead and make the investment in a Pie Crust Shield. There is nothing worse than having that perfect pie with a burnt crust.
- How can you tell if your Pecan Pie is done? You will want the center to give you a little jiggle but still be stable (kinda like the consistency of JELLO). If you pull your pie out and it gives you the wavy movement, you will need to bake for a little longer.
- This Lakanto Maple Flavored Sugar-Free Syrup has only 1 net carb per serving and really gives that rich maple taste this pie is needing.

The best low-carb pecan pie without all the sugar and carbs!
- 1 1/2 cup almond flour
- 3 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 5 tablespoons grass-fed butter
- 2 egg whites
- 3 tablespoons cold water
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- 4 tablespoons grass fed butter
- 7 tablespoons Swerve Brown Sugar
- 2 cups pecans halves
- 1/2 cup syrup
- 1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 eggs
Don’t be alarmed by the high total carb count!
Fiber and erythritol (the main ingredient in Swerve) do not affect blood sugar in the same way that regular carbs do, so we’ve subtracted them from the total carb count. You’ll see that the net carbs are much lower once you remove the sugar alcohols and fiber.
